One of my favorite all time projects and wall décor is these shadowboxes.
I am a sentimental girl and these make me smile every day. I made one for each of my four children. I used tiny pins to attach my favorite outfit from 6 months to a year. I also added their first shoes and special little items like monogrammed hair brushes, engraved rattles, pacifiers and even a hat crocheted by a sibling.
I bought 4 of the same shadow boxes from Exposures catalog to make sure they wouldn’t sell out and all would match. They have been worth every penny. Each has a nice chunky black frame with a hinged door on the front that has a secure magnetic closure. The box is deep and has a velvet background.
You could fill a shadowbox with memorabilia from sports, graduation, wedding, babies, military, vacations and it goes on and on!
I checked Exposures and see them mentioned on their site as “Bare Essential Shadowboxes” but can’t find them currently for sale. http://www.exposuresonline.com/exposuresonline/exposurestyle.aspx?id=exstyleshowcrtshadowbox. Michaels, Joann’s, AC Moore and Amazon have similar items if you decided to display your memorabilia.
